Film & TV


Universal Music Publishing’s Film & TV Department creates opportunities for and licenses our catalogue of songs to film, television, advertising, computer games and stage productions: what is often referred to as ‘synchronisation’. We work closely with each writer to support their creative endeavours and both promote and protect their music at every stage of their career. Covering everything from a song’s first play on Australian TV to a major US hit series or scoring original film music, we always treat every use of our artists’ music with equal importance.
